Katie Austin’s 5 Pumpkin Recipes You Have to Try

From pasta to pancakes and coffee to milkshakes, the options to add pumpkin are limitless.

Fall is finally here and I have some amazing pumpkin recipes for you guys to try this week! From pancakes to pasta to smoothies and more, pumpkin is the perfect ingredient to kick your recipes up a notch and make them extra festive for the fall season.

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta with Garlic and Sage


This might truly be the best pasta dish I have ever made in my entire life! The pumpkin, paired with the brown butter, sage and garlic, results in the most amazing and creamy pasta you have ever tried! A secret ingredient in this recipe is a little bit of nutmeg to give it a hint of sweetness and that extra fall kick.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew


I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting all year for the Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. I figured out how to make it at home, and you guys, it’s even better than the original.

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Pancakes


Pumpkin. Spice. Chocolate. Chip. Pancakes! I wouldn’t say this is my *healthiest* recipe yet, but is SO GOOD, festive and the perfect comfort food to make for breakfast or brunch on the weekend.

Gluten-Free and Sugar-Free Pumpkin Muffins


These muffins are gluten free, and there is no artificial sugar added (only natural sugars in the coconut flour, honey, etc.). I love this recipe because it is so simple, you just add all ingredients together in one bowl and mix until well combined, and then bake.

Coco Pumpkin Spice Healthy Smoothie


I am obsessed with this healthy milkshake. You will LOVE it. It tastes like pumpkin cinnamon chocolatey goodness. Perfect for a fall morning or if you are craving something sweet for a late night snack!
